In the 1910s and 1920s, a small institution called Throop Polytechnic Institute dramatically reinvented itself, transforming from a manual arts academy to an engineering school, then expanding into a research institute. A century ago, it became the California Institute of Technology. Join us on Zoom for a series of presentations on the science, engineering, architecture, and community life of early Caltech.
This session, the second of our series, will include three brief presentations:
• Chemistry Comes to Caltech: Arthur Amos Noyes, Gates Laboratory, and X-Ray Crystallography
• The Faculty Women’s Club and Women at Early Caltech
• Paleontology and the Road Not Taken
Future sessions in this series will follow every other Thursday. Learn more: https://www.library.caltech.edu/becoming-caltech-presentations
